Also called the mask of pregnancy chloasma is a unique kind of pigmentation that causes brown spots to appear on the bridge of the nose, cheeks and neck. The lone way to manage chloasma is to camouflage it with a blemish stick or the cover- up make-up that are used for birthmarks.

Never make an effort to bleach out the pigment; the spots will start to disappear within three months of childbirth. In black women, spots of lighter skin grow on their faces and necks. These will likely evaporate after delivery and can be camouflaged during pregnancy.
